Originally, the whole election process should have been over by now and we could dback slap/commiserate as required.
But that was then and this is now. So now, today, I'm off on holiday to France, checked weather forecast and its looking good until we leave on the 14th. Ofcourse, as I'm about to leave there are calls for the election to be scrapped and Independent candidates to be scrapped to the recycle bin.
So, having been enthusiastic about the PASB from inception my timing, as it has turned out, could not be worse. But I still say, Lets go forward when the prize of real fan involvment for all is in reach. And why not? The Child ballots were an unfortunate hiccup by the ERS (?) but they have it in their power to rectify. So why throw the baby out with the bathwater, literaly and metaphorically?
None, lets get the thing up and running, lets get on with monitoring decisions of the Board, lets get on with providig an interface for fans.
And for once, lets ignore all the neighsayers who dont possess a constructive bone in their body nor have the confidence (without a keyboard) to stand and challenge.
This is a great opportunity as it brings gauranteed "face time" with the Board, something no other group has and has the capacity to ensure the bad times do not return without warning.
For all the fraught journey to get here, lets cross the line and make it better, rather than strangle at birth.
I know you are desperate to be part of the PASB and it seems at any cost but forever and a day there will be questions regarding the childrens vote and I feel that until a legitimate election is carried out the "board" will be hindered and open to ridicule.
